#162 – On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous

On this episode, we discuss our November 2021 book club pick On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong, a  tale of a son writing a letter to his illiterate mother and processing the legacy of trauma he has inherited from being a Vietnamese refugee as well as growing up as a poor queer boy in America. We talk through our thoughts and explore the themes of this very dense and beautifully written book.
